Watermelon "Steak" Salad
Not your mother's fruit salad. A cold, thick, steak-like slice of ripe watermelon pairs unexpectedly well with salty Cotija cheese and a smoky vinaigrette. Also try it with leftover grilled chicken or beef.
Texas Caviar Rice and Beans
Turn a Lone Star State appetizer into a simple weeknight main dish. Customize with any topping, such as guacamole, salsa, or a dollop of sour cream.
Barbecue-Peach Summer Rolls
Savor sweet, juicy peaches this summer with Barbecue-Peach Summer Rolls appetizer.
Cutting zucchini into thin strips is easy and makes a fresh substitute for pasta. Add thinly sliced ribbons of salami for a meatier meal.
Bloody Mary Tomato Salad with Quick Pickled Shrimp
Mix and match colorful assorted tomatoes, such as 'Beefsteak,' 'Brandywine,' and 'Cherokee Purple.' Their rich, meaty flavor counters the dressing's tang and zip. Don't overlook the tender inside leaves of the celery bunch--they're quite delicious, and they add an herbal note to the dish.
Picnic in a Glass
This Southern spin on Middle Eastern fattoush salad can be assembled in the morning before taking off to your picnic, tailgate, or work so the flavors meld and pita chips soften. Serve it directly from the jars. We love wide-mouth Weck jars, though any style will do.
